R. Howell

This new cd by Darren Nicholson is just the BEST! I've watched his talent grow from the beginning, when he was a stand-out musician, to what he is now - - one of the very finest mandolin players in the nation - - period. This cd clearly demonstrates how he's obviously had "THE HAND" laid upon him! Some of bluegrass music's BEST pickers help out on this fine album, as well, so do yourself a favor and buy a copy or two - - The next best thing to seeing him perform in person. Mighty fine!!


This is a fantastic CD. I'm new to this particular music scene, but I know what I like - and I LOVE this!
